There can only be one name for this dress.
It combines the lace favoured by Kate Middleton.
It has the corset style and black/nude shades of Kate Moss's dress.
And the bodycon dresses (emphasising the child bearing hips) favoured by Kate Winslet.
I picked the dress up from Marks and Spencer's Autograph range in the Christmas sale two years ago.
It is made of a very heavy jersey and although I am carrying a little extra weight at the moment it is very forgiving.
I wore the dress for a Christmas meal out with the family and my son's girlfriend.
It still looked good after a four course meal!
Shoes - Clarks
Dress - Autograph
